Subject: It's not literature but it's fun.
Great literature this isn't. But the cast are colorful and exuberant enough in their bouts with each other that this becomes an engaging B movie after it gets really started. It's full of inventive jokes, a parade of exchanges among an array of stock and occasionally more-than-stock characters in shades of black and white, bonking each other on the head and chasing each other in speeding cars and trains, that harbors some passing critiques of 1930s society. Fun to watch. A keeper.

Subject: Mulligan stew, lightly spiced
An enjoyable absurdist comedy in which a harried millionaire falls off the back of a train, and then willingly becomes a hobo for a week. There is a lot of amusing nonsense here, plus a few genuine belly laughs. Frank Craven is the millionaire. James Burke and Jimmy Conlin are his "knights of the open road" companions. A romantic subplot between Helen Matthews and Jimmy Dugan doesn't intrude on the fun. The first third of this print is plagued by glitches and corresponding dialog cutouts. Fortunately the meat of the action is mostly intact. The overall image quality is fair. No brain cells required, just sit back and enjoy. CAST NOTES: Two very familiar faces: James Burke made more than 200 films, often playing dumb cops. The diminutive Jimmy Conlin appeared in 148 movies in both comedic and dramatic roles.
